Here’s what happened on this day in New York Mets history:
1989: The Mets’ defense does not record a single assist in a 5-1 win over Philadelphia, tying the major-league record set by the Indians in 1945. New York pitchers retire the Phillies on 13 strikeouts, 12 fly outs, and two ground balls to first base.
2008: New York Mets claimed first baseman Andy Phillips on waivers from the Cincinnati Reds.
2010: One day after the celebrity website TMZ.com reported Johan Santana was being accused of sexual assault, the Mets pitcher acknowledged being with the woman in Fort Myers, Florida during October 2009. No charges were filed, citing a lack of evidence. Thesmokinggun.com published the police report.
